    Parking brake issues... again

    Yes and its a 5 speed swap... come to think about it my issues started when I did the swap. I woke up more level headed this morning, updated the title of this thread to something a little more mature, and went outside to disable the parking brake on that wheel. 1991 sploder, I will look...

    Parking brake issues... again

    My apologies for the rather harsh title, I'm tired of trying to fix this to no avail. I've been fighting it for 8 months now. I drive and the drivers side rear brake gets hot as hell, I've warped two brand new drums to the point of being unusable. Its the parking brake dragging... and I have no...

    rebuilt fuel injectors

    Yeah, sorry. Got em installed, truck runs better than it has in a while. No pics, sorry. Didn't take any when I did em. Tip to a beginner though, if the rail is not seating all the way down to the lower intake, and the injectors are not sliding into their holes, take the fuel rail back off and...

    Engine Missfire

    last misfire I had was just like yours or it started out that way at least. Ended up being dirt in the fuel and it destroyed the fuel pump and injectors I second the notion of checking fuel pressure

    Thank you guys, thats what I needed to hear. Now I hope I can bench bleed one properly the first try, but we will see. Thisll be my first experience with clutch hydraulics.

    Clutch pedal position has me scratching my head

    so I did a M5OD swap on my 94 Swap came from a 91, which coincidentally was a swap as well. I didnt swap any hydraulics out because they were new. I found out afterwards a 91 master does not work with a 94, but i made it work by bending the shaft that goes from the pedal to the master But its...

    Corrosion repair on aluminum wheels?

    For those of you reading this thread to fix your own wheels, use a pressure washer on the paint stripper rather than a putty knife. Much easier.

    Corrosion repair on aluminum wheels?

    Currently stripping the clear coat to sand out the pitting, and I found another reason to hate the Obama administration. Removal of Methyl Chloride made aorcraft stripper useless. Currently trying to find a good product to strip the wheels.

    3.55 or 3.73?

    So I did a little online calculators 3.55 with 31s has only slightly higher rpms than 3.23 with 235s Essentially it will make the 31s feel the same power-wise as stock tires. If i decide to go 3.73 one day then perhaps If anyone has a set of 3.73s they could go without though...

    3.55 or 3.73?

    It's a stick, it's a daily driver with occasional off road use. Towing a john boat sometimes, estimated weight between boat and gear is ~1000 lbs Infrequently tows heavier loads, but not often. Going to be moving sometime soon, itll see quite a bit of weight behind it then

    3.55 or 3.73?

    So a trip to the tire shop for a hole patch turned into a new set of tires :rolleyes: Going with the BFGoodrich K02s in 31x10.50r15 size I plan on either a 2 inch lift, or if they fit the front without rubbing ill just do an AAL in the back to give a little rake for a more aggressive look. My...

    MY experiences with Amoco fuel (misfires+low fuel pressure)

    They look different, but say they're for the right engine. Why do they look different than the ones im running right now?
